Janali Gustafson, a 2013 Los Alamos High School graduate, is one of nine students to be published in the next issue of Scientific American Mind.
Gustafson is attending Quest University in Canada, located in Squamish, British Columbia, north of Vancouver.
Gustafson said the publication opportunity came while taking a rhetoric class during the fall semester. Karen Simring’s taught the class for first-year students and instructed them to write news articles about recent scientific studies. Nine students in the class were chosen based on the quality of the articles and on the magazine’s needs. Gustafson’s topic was how scientists erase drug-associated memory in mice.
“Janali really came into her own her last year of high school and entered Quest University ready to embrace the opportunities there, one of which was the chance to turn a class assignment into an article submission to Scientific American Mind,” father John Gustafson said.
Simring is one of the editors of the magazine. “It’s very exciting to know that at 19, I have already been published,” Gustafson said. “I am extremely grateful to Karen for giving me the opportunity.” She humbly said that she did not expect to get published.
